Team Mom, Founder & CEO

Robin Eissler is Team Mom, Founder & CEO of BoosterHub, a software app designed specifically for high school booster clubs. In 2017 she sold her successful aircraft sales business and was immediately roped into being the President of her daughter's volleyball booster club. She discovered that the skills and tools needed for running a business were the same skills and tools needed to run the booster club (a small non-profit business). While leading the club through two successful years (including a record breaking fundraising year during COVID) she also discovered the tools for volunteer managed organizations either were terrible or did not exist. She's spent the last three years creating tools. It's now time to tell the stories!
